The National Coordinator of Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG) Olusegun Bamgbose has warned the People Democratic Party not to jubilate over the victory of Godwin Obaseki at the Edo State Governorship election, as he might be rejoining the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Stating that the victory of Obaseki had nailed the political career of the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bamgbose explained that Obaseki might have struck a deal with President Muhammadu Buhari during a meeting with him before the election.
According to Bamagbose, Obaseki after a meeting with Buhari before the election made a statement that his discussion with Buhari will determine his next step.

“Tinubu [Bola] went extra mile to frustrate Obaseki, but he failed woefully. Edo voters clipped his big wings.
“On the other hand, Oshiomhole exhausted his political arsenal, but met his waterloo.
“Obaseki’s victory has finally nailed his political coffin. His political career has dishonorably come to an end. It’s really painful.
“However, PDP should not rejoice much, because Obaseki may soon stage a comeback to APC, other things being equal.
“Obaseki made a statement before pulling out of APC, that his discussions with President Buhari will determine his next step.
“It’s most likely that Obaseki struck a deal with President Buhari to return back to APC, after winning the election.
“It’s no longer news that President Buhari has already congratulated Obaseki on his re-election as Governor of Edo State. Many have been commending him for allowing free and fair election in Edo State.
“President Buhari ensured the governorship election was free and fair in view of possibly, the agreement they had before he decamped to PDP. It’s most likely Obaseki will go back to APC,” Bamgbose said.
It will be recalled that Obaseki left APC to join PDP after he had issues with Adams Oshiomhole, erstwhile APC national chairman.
Obaseki was, however, declared elected for a second tenure in office by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday after he defeated the candidate of the APC, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu with over 100,000 votes.
